The Albright-Knox Art Gallery will showcase African-American leaders and their contributions with a series of street murals in Buffalo, according to WIVB. The project, which will be located on the Michigan Street African American Heritage Corridor, will highlight 29 local and national civil rights leaders as a part of the Gallery’s Public Art Initiative, which is supported by Erie County and City of Buffalo.


The canvas for the street murals will be a 300 ft. long blank canvas at the corner of Michigan Ave. and East Ferry St., across from Buffalo’s oldest black church, Bethel A.M.E. Buffalo Artist Chuck Tingley will begin working on the murals at the end of May and hopes to have them done by August!
